  1. Enstrom used to have his girlfriends (yes, multiple) sit in different sections of the arena....I wonder if that tradition continued in Winnipeg....

    I honestly don't see what this has to do with anything, yet you bring things like this up on a fairly regular basis.

  2. I was just thinking this exact scenario the other day. Just about anyone in the top 7 or so have the ability to step right into an NHL lineup, so why not package those two picks (and maybe Enstrom, he's just not a western conference guy) for a top 7 pick?


  3. If I'm not mistaken, that 1984 game not only featured former Bomber QB Dieter Brock playing for Hamilton, but former Hamilton QB Tom Clements playing for Winnipeg. Hamilton also jumped out to an early 17-0 lead before the Bombers woke up and cruised to victory

    It was actually a 14-3 lead in the 1st quarter before the Bombers struck through, holding the Ti-Cats to only one other field goal in the 2nd quarter and keeping them off the scoreboard in the 2nd half.
    It's been a while. Haven't seen the game in 31 years.

  5. From the merch I've seen online, there are definitely some instances where the lighter blue and silver really pop against the darker backgrounds. Probably a lot more than the subdued, if that's a word that applies to the old Moose colors, ever did.

    I'll be getting a shirt or two, for sure.


  6. Yeah, the Jets are in for a few years, at least. With the kids they have coming in, another underrated FA signing like Chevy pulled off with Perreault last year, and what will probably be a fleecing at the draft (17 and 25 and probably Enstrom-Myers for a top ten and a third rounder), the Jets finish no lower than 4th in the central till 2018.

    I am not a prognosticator.


  7. The Mighty Ducks wore black equipment for a couple years and I remember reading somewhere it was because the equipment suppliers (or something like that) changed and they didn't have the eggplant material readily available.

    And the Jack Ferreira interview from a couple months ago could back that up because he said Disney had to get and send the eggplant fabric out for equipment themselves when the Ducks first started.

    You sure about this? I think you're thinking about the avalanche.

  8. Honestly, I don't hate the Mighty Ducks' logo as much as I use to. I would've I probably prefered a more modernized version of it entering the newer decade, but it overall wasn't "horrendous". I still didn't like their old colors though.

    The current set is fine, but they really need to replace the black with maybe a deep green. Since they use orange more than they do gold, they should switch the colors on the logo, making it orange with a gold outline underneath it instead.

    Dark green, bronze, and blaze orange. Book it.

  9. I also imagine weatherproofing SkyDome would be prohibitively expensive.

    To that point(?), one of the reasons the Argos for example could never play rain or shine with the roof open - the entire 500 level apparently doesn't drain for rain.

    The lone Argo game I saw in Toronto, the roof was open on a beautiful day so I don't think that's a real thing. At least not a few years ago it wasn't.
